Chinese manufacturers top the 'mobile game charts' this month

According to the report from SensorTower, Genshin Impact from miHoYo is the top-grossing mobile game worldwide for October 2020. The game earned $239 million in players spending for the recorded month.

The game has a huge fan following in China with over 31% of revenue coming from the district. This is followed by 24.5% from Japan and 19% from the United States.

The place for the second highest-earning mobile game worldwide was secured by Honor of Kings from Tencent. The game earned $225 million in gross revenue. This is represented by 65.5% year-over-year growth from October 2019.

Honor of Kings is massively popular in China with 96% of its earnings received from the region. This is followed by a revenue of 1.4% from Taiwan.

Other games that are in the line include PUBG mobile from Tencent, Pokémon Go from Niantic, and Coin Master from Moon Active.

Genshin Impact was one of the biggest (and successful) launches of the year. The title was officially released on September 28, generating $60 million in its first week and $250 million in the first month.

Moonlight Blade is another Chinese gaming app that made the headlines this year. The title was officially released on October 15 and closed in on revenue of $86 million in the first two weeks. However, unlike other games on the list, the Moonlight Blade is only available in China. And therefore, the figures also show how lucrative the Chinese mobile game market is.
